This page contains details of the meetings of our Area Groups, other HMRS meetings and our participation in events organised by others.

For directions and how to contact the Area Group Organiser go to the Area Groups page.

Due to the current Coronavirus situation and the recommendations of the United Kingdom Government, the HMRS Trustees have decided to cancel all HMRS formal meetings and public events until 30 June 2020 at the earliest. The situation will be reviewed again then. This means that Area Group meetings before then are cancelled and the AGM will be postponed until a date yet to be decided. For further details please go to the HMRS Home page. Please note there is a virtual meeting on 27 May 2020.
